My Sentiments, Exactly . . .

Reader Comments (2)

To be honest I find Mr Johnson's sentiments to be at best extremely naive when it comes to history and especially history as it pertains to the Lutheran and Catholic churches response in 1934 to the election of Adolf Hitler as it relates to the realities of Donald Trump . Suffice it to say one does not hope for the best nor does one try to work with or compromise with a narcissistic psychopath . At worst I find Mr Johnson's comments to be the very essence of contemporary American Evangelical Christian Platitudes and Attitudes .e.g completely devoid of substance . Which in light of the fact that 80% of the so called Evangelical Christians did vote for a bigoted racist anti - semite [ forget the net .. its all in the public record ] as their next President comes as no surprise . What does come as a surprise as well as an utter disappointment though Mr Riddlebarger is your seeming endorsement of Mr Johnson's meaningless and trite commentary . In such a time as this one would hope for a moment of solace and support from one claiming so staunchly to be in defense of the Bible . Unfortunately though all thats to be found here are inane Platitudes & Attitudes that neither address the seriousness of the issue at hand nor offer up even so much as a moment of comfort , never mind any real advice or information as to how to proceed in these perilous times upon us .

I voted for the Democrat and vehemently opposed Trump, but I am hard pressed to fathom how you can call what was said trite platitudes. As a matter straight forward Biblical instruction we are supposed to pray for our leaders whether we like them or not.:

1 Tim. 2: First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, 2 for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way. 3 This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, 4 who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.

Jeremiah 29: 7 But seek the welfare of the city where I have sent you into exile, and pray to the Lord on its behalf, for in its welfare you will find your welfare.

Secondly, on the basis of love of country, I want this country to succeed. While I think it doubtful and I would not have voted for Trump under any circumstance, I still hope he succeeds and the country and all in it prospers.

And by the way many Christians I know did not vote for Trump and abhorred him. I am perplexed by your very dubious statistics and ascribing of base motives to voters you disagree with.

So I guess what I am saying is I think I disagree with your assessment, even as I mourn the outcome of our last election. Prayer is not a bad place to start with any difficult situation.
